Cardi B has never been shy about revealing everything from her plastic surgery to her relationship with Offset. And now Cardi is spilling the details on her finances. Taking to Instagram, the Grammy-winning MC disclosed just how much she’s getting paid for her festival performances and concerts.
In response to questions as to why she hasn’t gone on tour yet, Cardi explained that it doesn’t financially make sense for her to launch her own tour.
In a since-deleted post, captured by iHeartRadio’s 97.1 ZHT, she broke down exactly how much money she’s making for her summer gigs, and it’s no less than $300,000 per show, going all the way up to $900,000 for Switzerland’s Openair Frauenfeld festival.
“I find it so funny that people that ARE NOT FANS have the biggest concerns on why haven’t I done a tour. Welp because here you go, let me break it down for you,” said Cardi, who captioned a spreadsheet of the money she makes from each performance.
But despite the big paydays, not all the money goes to her. “Let’s say if I go on tour and I do 600K a night right… sounds good but let’s get in the touring business shall we?” she added. “Stage production gotta be massive since the fans pay massive so just on stage and production I will have to put about 450K maybe more a night since you know Bardigang deserve everything. Don’t forget, outfit, makeup, hair, I’ll be left with like 150k a night.”
The “Money” hitmaker continued to explain her motivation. “Now why would I do that now when I can go on tour on my second album while I get festival and independent Cardi concerts. Money??? Mhhhhhmmmmmm,” she said. “You see ya might think I’m dumb cause my attitude or the way I think but one thing bout Bardi I loveeeee money and I know how to make it …I hope I answer ya question …Thank you. Just stop it already.”
